Desire? A strong feeling of wanting to have something or wishing for something to happen. We all have desires, yet are you sure that when you achieve that desire you will feel how you were expecting to feel?
The Desire Map started out as a book, written by Danielle LaPorte. From there, it became the driver of over 500 book clubs around the world.
At the heart of it all? A commitment to feeling good.
Cynics would say that choosing to place your focus on feeling good is silly – maybe, even selfish.
But I (and thousands of other Desire Mappers around the globe) know better. Because who wants to live a life that doesn’t feel good?
Who wants to work in a job that sucks their life force?
Who wants to be in relationships where they don’t feel nourished and honored?
Who wants to feel bored in their own life?
Not me. And I’m pretty sure, not you.
The Desire Map taught me how to make better choices by making decisions based on my core desired feelings. And that boils down to living a life that feels good to live.
I’ve watched this book inspire major transformation in my own life and in the lives of many others. I believe in this material — I know that it works.
I don’t believe we’re on this planet to live unfulfilled lives, or to let our potential go unrealized.
I DO believe that we’re each here to design a life that feels good. Feel good at work, in your clothes, in your relationships, in your heart.
It’d be my honor to support you in creating that.
Yes, Desire Mapping is another process. The interesting thing though is that as you go through the process, words, which are very powerful in our lives, become clearer as well as feelings. What are some of my peeps saying? “Now I know where I am headed.” “I am using my words to guide the creation of my marketing and soul statements.”
I love watching people embody their words. An example, “So last night I had a moment-I have a hard time accepting compliments from people. My 8 year-old is on a fundraising quest and it’s online, and people were complimenting her (well-deserved). But they were also saying what a great mom she has. Last night, I took time to read each and every compliment and let it absorb. I am STRONG.”
Why is it important to name our desired feelings? That old saying that feelings aren’t facts may be true, yet if you know how you ultimately want to feel, you can base your goals around attaining that feeling instead of just reaching a goal.
